My grandfather left a plot of land to my mother (from first marriage) and her brother (second marriage). He had 2 other children, not from marriage, who are currently trying to fight for a share in the land. Are they legally able to do this since there is a proper will(followed state guidelines)?
If they are omitted from the will, over age 23, not disabled, and there is no language like: "and any other issue". They will not get a piece. If there is language like: "and any other issue", then it does include subsequent children noy named.
The house that we are purchasing is a foreclosure. Originally, the owner owned 35 acres and that house is on that land. Several years ago, he sold 30 acres to his brother's business, so now the house just sits on 5 acres. The problem is that part of the driveway to the house is now on his... Read more »
Hire a competent attorney to perform a title search. There may be an easement by implication by the common grantor. Or there may be an express easement in the chain of title. Having an easement declared by necessity is the last, most expensive possibility.

Either go to the appropriate Parrish in LA and search the Land and Tax Records for any familial lands. Or better, hire a local attorney to look for whatever there is. He will need any possible name that owned land and probably years of death. It should be cheap as there may be nothing.

I bought the loan to a trailer they cosigned for my aunt and her husband. They bullied me into signing a document releasing them from responsibility as co-signer. They said if I didn't my mama and I had to leave and if we didn't they would have the law remove us. I was threatened to... Read more »
You own a trailer. You owe a lien for a trailer. They are still responsible for the lien if you don't pay it because I seriously doubt the lender would release to 2 cosigners. If you have a lease to the land, you can enforce it. If you don't, they can evict you. They have no other...Read more »
You should seek the help of an attorney who handles property matters to determine if you have a servitude (or right of passage) across your neighbor's property. If so, that attorney can help you enforce your rights. Good luck

If a couple owns a home jointly (person A owns 50% and person B owns 50%) and person B passes away does the title of the house needed to be updated to the sole beneficiary of person B before Person A can sell the home?
In theory, no, because could just sell his or her 50% interest on his or her signature alone, but it is unlikely you will find a buyer who wants to co-own with the estate of B. Most likely you will need to have B's interest retitled in order to sell a 100% interest in the property to an...Read more »

During heavy rains, the small storm drain in front of my house gets overwhelmed and water backs up indoors. The city cleaned ditches for me once; the next time I contacted them they ignored me.

One option you could try is to contact a member of your local government for your district, maybe a city council member or someone along those lines. If the situation you describe is something that other residents in the vicinity are also experiencing, it's possible that an elected official...Read more »
